Coton Connection, Issue #037 - Fear of Noise
June 25, 2013
Welcome Coton Lovers:

Fear of fireworks?

I hope you and your Cotons are enjoying the Summer. Here in the US, it's that time of year that many dog owners dread - 4th of July and fireworks. In Florida, we also get a lot of very loud summer thunderstorms. If your dog is afraid of loud noises it can be a challenging time.

Here are some posts from the website that may be helpful if your dog has this issue with loud noises. I can tell you that the single thing that's helped Luc the most is to drown out the noise - whether it's fireworks or thunder. I make sure all the doors and windows are closed and then turn up the TV or radio.

General Stress Relief

And of course, here's a some great advice from one of my favorite dog trainers - Doggy Dan:

Summer should be a fun time, right? I hope you all have a wonderful, safe, and anxiety-free summer.
